Wynn also announces vaccination outreach initiative

Gaming operator Wynn Macau has announced that it will set up a vaccination centre at Wynn Palace on June 15 and 16 for team members and their families.

Apart from measures such as vaccine seminars, special leave and job deployment arrangements, Wynn will also organize a back-of-house campaign hosting roadshow activities with lucky draw prizes for its team members in the coming weeks.

‘Given the recent emergence of local COVID-19 cases in multiple areas of Guangdong
Province, Wynn will continue to proactively cooperate with the SAR government to promote vaccination work in the hope of preventing a pandemic outbreak in the Macau community,’ the gaming operator said in the announcement.

Guangdong has confirmed 20 new cases on Sunday, of which 18 were found in Guangzhou and two in Foshan, with Macau health authorities again urging local residents to get the jab and increase the city’s group immunity.

Wynn was the first gaming concessionaire to announce on March 4 that each team member that gets vaccinated will be entitled to two days of special leave.

The company will also hold an educational seminar at Wynn Macau and Wynn Palace on June 8 and 9 with Health Bureau Vaccination Coordinator, Dr. Tai Wa Hou, to provide team members with information on the vaccines.

All six gaming concessionaires are expected to hold similar vaccination initiatives, with MGM China having already held a two-day event between May 24 and 25 that saw some 1,200 staff members vaccinated and with Sands China to hold one between May 31 and June 3.

Gaming operator Galaxy Entertainment Group (GEG) will also set up a vaccination point at Galaxy Macau between June 10 and 12 able to serve 1,500 to 1,800 team members and their family members, while Melco Resorts & Entertainment Limited will advance with a MOP16 million ‘vaccination encouragement programme’.
